EIT Urban Mobility
Transforming urban mobility
The AMB is part of EIT Urban Mobility. This initiative, launched by the European Institute of Innovation and Technology (EIT) in 2019, works to encourage positive changes in the way cities move to make them more liveable. EIT Urban Mobility aims to become Europe’s leading initiative in transforming urban mobility. As such, the EIT will provide it with up to 400 million euros in co-funding (over the period 2020-2026) through the Horizon 2020 and Horizon Europe programmes. This network is headquartered in Barcelona, from where the initiative is led and activities such as innovation projects, business growth actions, training initiatives and so on are developed.
The ultimate objective of EIT Urban Mobility is to accelerate solutions and the transition towards a people-centred, integrated and truly multimodal transport system.
As Europe’s leading innovative urban mobility community, EIT Urban Mobility works to avoid fragmentation by facilitating collaboration between cities, industry and innovative academic and research centres to solve the most pressing mobility challenges facing cities. Industry, research and academic partners use cities as living laboratories and work to demonstrate how new technologies can solve real problems in cities by transporting people and goods more intelligently and efficiently.
The AMB joined the EIT association as a full member in March 2020, part of its pursuit of resolute, forward-looking policies to promote sustainable mobility in line with the European strategy of the Green New Deal and NextGenerationEU. That is why the AMB sees its active participation in the EIT as strategic in putting new public policies into practice, improving existing ones and furthering public-private collaboration for dynamic change.
